Ride! If something goes wrong with the bike I'm sure you (and your bike) can get a lift back to Denver. If no one will, I'll give you a lift myself.

And I'm sure there will be a number of us riding there, from Denver, that you could hook up with for the trip. That's more fun anyway!


Sent from my device upon which I can access nearly all knowledge in the world, yet which I actually use to look at pictures of motorbikes and cute dogs.

IN!

Also reserved the last cabin/yurt available. There's room for 2 more people (3 more if two share a bed). If anyone wants a warm dry place to sleep, instead of the cold unforgiving (possibly wet) ground of a tent, send me a PM to reserve your spot. $25/night if we fill all the beds.

Got you down!!



With the weather starting to get nice I'm sure more people have riding on their mind. Westfest will be the perfect place for any kind of rider (or ability), from those looking for amazing dual-sport routes, back country gravel roads, historic mines, ghost towns and then the gnar single track of Taylor Park

Is there any easy single track in the Taylor Park area? Like the first section of the Rainbow trail from the top of Monarch pass.

I am not sure I have ridden that section of Rainbow (maybe, but if I did it was dark). Timberline is of course an ass kicker and then some of the stuff on either side of Cement Creek that is pretty tough. However there is plenty in-between that is fun, easier, flowing single track such as Rosebud Gulch, Deadman Gulch, Reno Ridge, Flag Creek Trail, 1st part of Mt Tilton, and then some of the trails on the Crested Butte side.

A really fun ride on a plated dirtbike would be from Buena Vista to Crested Butte for lunch and then back, combining high county gravel roads, DS 4x4 roads and some of the above single track. You could get a great variety of riding, see some incredible county, unique ski towns, and be back in time for BBQ and BS



My Dad and I after he wrestled his XR650R though most of the trails I mentioned above
